ANTIQUE 22K GOLD GEM & ENAMEL EARRINGS - FINEST QUALITY
Price: $400.00
Antique 22carat gold, gem and enamel earrings. Made circa 1880 - 1920 in India. 1 inch long. Weigh 5.6grams. Classic shape - elongated with elaborate, minute detail making up the whole. Golden globes of various sizes, exquisitely fine wire-work - some details too fine to see with the naked eye, and a series of 3-lobed discs, fanning out near the top. To enhance the gold further, a pair of red enamelled circles flank the largest globe. Old enamel work, called minakari, is incresingly difficult to find in good condition. Balancing the pear-shaped design of the top, is a pear-shaped gemstone pointing the other way. Surrounded by an engraved band of gold, it tests as a spinel or topaz (natural stone, not glass/synthetic). Superb craftmanship went into making this pair of earrings. Tiny detail seen in the little clover-shaped discs set alongside each other. Wonderfully elegant design. New backs make the earrings comfortable to wear for the modern woman who does not have the large distended holes in her ears that were worn by the original owner. Earrings have hallmarks on the backs One reads 22K and the other 16HS. Good condition. Back of one earring shows tiny sign of soldering, but this is not at all visible from the front. (highly magnified in ''photos). Good antique Mughal / Indian jewellery combines the wonders of ages gone by with amazing design and delicacy executed by outstanding craftsmen and is becoming increasingly difficult to obtain as it grows in appreciation throughout the world.
